God I hate Simon and Garfunkel. Paul Simon on his own is ok. I really like some of his solo stuff...but together they make me want to puke.

I know what you mean about the two of them together; on the earlier LPs particularly the songs were very good, and they sang sweetly together, but they sure do sound dated now. In fairness, the same could be said for some other "folk craze" acts from the early-mid sixties.

The Bridge Over Troubled Water album was tremendous, though! It's hardly a "hidden gem", but I love every note on that album. Give it another try!

That instrumental passage from the clip is interesting. I'm sure that there is a GD influence - it reminds me very much of some of the arrangements from April 1971 that are found on the Ladies and Gentlemen set.

Meeoww! I thought Graceland was in the clear nowadays, but - the horror - Paul Simon couldn't even get it right over pronouncing les haricots. Fun album all the same.
